A long period north northeast swell, combined with locally generated wind waves has prompted a high surf advisory along the east facing shores of Maui County.

The National Weather Service issued the advisory on Friday afternoon, Sept. 26, saying surf heights are expected to be in the six to eight foot range through Saturday afternoon.

The advisory will remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014.

According to the NWS advisory, strong breaking waves are expected that will make swimming difficult and dangerous.
